Sorry you're leaving

hello friends.
hope you are all well and enjoying the September sun. 

Today's card is a commission card I made back in May - I used a bugaboo digi image but altered the words underneath - to fit in with the lady recipient.

It is a 8" square card so the image was made larger to keep in proportion.
I coloured her with copics and added the corners using Whimsy corner die set  - I also added some glossy accents to her glass and a bit of glitter to the bubbles.

The sentiment was added using a font called Fabulous 50's just slightly spaced out to make it more readable.

Here is another close up of the image.

Thanks again for dropping by today to say hello and leave a comment. You have no idea how much it means to me to read your lovely comments.

hugs to you all until tomorrow and Friday's card.

Happy Birthday (choccy love)

hello friends
sorry its been a while - just haven't felt like making cards at all. but onwards and upwards. Lucky wouldn't want me being sad forever - and she loved to "help" me craft.  Thanks to those of you who left kind messages on my previous post of her passing. 

So - today's card is a card from a while ago - I have a few to share with you all.
This is a requested card for a choccy lover - I love this image. He is one of the Newton Bear images that I have on a CD - I printed him out and because I felt the image stood on its own I added some glossy accents to the heart.

The wording is done direct onto the card base using a font called Bambino - I simply added some brown card to look like chocolate as a matting layer and hey presto - a card. LOL

 This is a close up of the image and you can see the glossy accents on the heart above his head.

Hope you like today's card - I will be back tomorrow with another card to share with you all.

love always

My cat Lucky 2001 - 2014

I am sad to share with you today that my little cat Lucky passed away on Saturday morning.
She was a stray cat we took in about 14 years and she was "top dog" in the house. She was spoilt rotten - and although she was about 16 altogether she still was tiny and about the size of a 1 year old cat.

She was extremely loving and affectionate and loved nothing better that cuddling up to you on your left shoulder and chest so that her chin was on your shoulder and her body could feel your heart beat.

 She wasn't alone when she passed away both my husband and I sat up all night with her she was never left alone not even for a moment.

She was a little princes who will be greatly missed.

R.I.P. Lucky - gone but never ever forgotten xxx

Paper Crafts U Print - Maddie and her Ladybug

Hello Friends - Happy Friday - wow what a week. what is going on with the weather? One minute its blazing hot sunshine then its thunder and lightning.
Still - its "summer" so you can get all 4 seasons in one day can't you.

Anyway enough waffle - today's card is a ready to print image and paper from the fabulous Paper Crafts U Print - an amazing website full of great ideas and images for ready to print cards.

I chose this image cos I think she is so cute and I love ladybirds.

I printed the sentiment of the card direct onto the card base itself and then printed the image out on separate card - as a larger card was requested.

I printed some extra sections of the paper and used them to make a butterfly.

I added diamantes to the body of the butterfly for sparkle.

Hope you like today's card. See you again very soon!

Lambrini Girl - One Lambrini, Two Lambrini, Three Lambrini - floor!!

hello friends
today's card is a specially requested card for a lady who loves Lambrini (other wines are available! LOL) - the image is Rudy Tidbits from Bugaboo Stamps - all I did was change their version with the tequila slogan.

I coloured her with copics and matted her onto some lilac card. The sentiment was printed directly onto the base card using a font called Fabulous 50's - all I did was just space it out slightly.

I added some glossy accent to her glasses and some glitter to her glass.

Here is a close up of the image. I chose purple for a change as I'm normally asked to do this in red. I liked the purple card.

thanks for dropping by hopefully today  and I appreciate any comment you may wish to leave.

hugs to you all

Beer Monster Birthday card

hello everyone
thanks for your recent comments. I much appreciate you bearing with me.

Today's card was another commission card this time for someone who is a total beer monster.
So I coloured this image with my copics and I added some glitter to the beer to make the froth a bit sparkly.

I think the image is from Pollycraft digi images - beer monster! I liked the orange and green so used green and orange card to matt and layer up the main image.

Wording was done direct onto the card base using a font called Janda Quirkygirl - which I thought was rather funky!!

 Here is a close up of the image.

 I added some glossy accents to his his to make them stand out a bit more!

hope you like today's card - I am trying to keep to my promise and not let you down again!
drop by tomorrow for another card.

hugs to you all

Happy 70th Birthday sister

hello - hopefully you are still following me - 
I have a new card to share with you and today its a commission card for a 70th birthday.

I have used the fabulous Hunkydory kit that was a freebie in one the craft magazines a few month back. all I can say is wow - what amazing quality they produce. 

I used one of the background papers that was free in the kit and printed the sentiment directly onto it - I think matted up the decoupage section of flowers.
I cut the border edging from the paper and matted this onto irridescent mirri card for sparkle.

I didn't add anything else as I felt it stood out enough as it was.

this is a close up of the decoupage section.

thanks for hopefully dropping by today. I will be back tomorrow with another card.

love you all
